Danish music duo Andreas Tophøj and Rune Barslund perform with a wide range of instruments, from violin and accordion to viola. The sound of the duo is has close ties to the Danish folk music tradition, however, the two young musicians also offer a new interpretation of Danish folk, influenced by music from Ireland and the US and from encounters with Celtic and Nordic musicians. The duo's repertoire is something of a musical melting pot and mainly features original compositions.

Andreas and Rune are both very experienced musicians and their track, ‘The Danish Immigrant’ was awarded track of the year at the Danish Music Awards Folk in 2012. The duo has its roots in Jutland, Denmark, and emerged from the folk scene formed around the Academy of Music in Odense.
